Health and Beauty Tip -- Help for Oily Hair

If you have trouble with oily hair, make sure you're not using any products that claim to give your hair "extra shine" -- you have plenty already!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Choosing the Right Brush

The type of hair brush (or comb) you use has a big influence on your hair. If you have short hair, try a short brush with soft, protective bristles.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Air-Drying Your Hair

Every once in awhile, air-drying your hair can be good for it -- as long as you do it right. Make sure you use an absorbent towel to speed up drying time, and blot your hair gently instead of rubbing it (rubbing can cause frizziness and split ends). For extra volume and waves, pull your hair back with large clips until it dries.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Makeup and Moisturizing

If you're accustomed to using a heavy moisturizer on your face, stop using it during the day. Use a lighter moisturizer under makeup, and save the heavier one until bedtime. This will help your makeup go on more evenly, and is more effective than "laying it on" twice a day.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Focus on the Face

When applying makeup, draw attention to one part of your face: either your eyes or your lips. Wearing large amounts of lipstick and eyeshadow at the same time divides the focus and isn't very flattering. Pick one to accentuate and tone down the other.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Treatment for Tired Eyes

To rejuvenate tired eyes, lay a slice of cold cucumber over each eye -- it really works! The reason is simple, though: anything cool over your eyes helps reduce redness, and makes them feel better, too. If you're looking for something easier, use a cool, damp washcloth instead.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Quick Hair Tip

If you can't get your hair to "do its thing" in the morning, invest in some hair clips and decorative sticks. It only takes a minute to twist your hair back and clip it into place, and the right hair accessories can still make your 'do look sophisticated. Use a bit of hairspray if you're worried about fly-aways.
